Good roads were responsible in
large measure for tlie high state of
civilization and culture which the old
Roman Empire reached centuries be
fore the invention of the telephone,
the automobile, the steam engine or
any of the other modern facilities of
travel or communication. What was
true of the Romans 2,000 years ago is
as true today of Americans in their
intercourse with one another.
.Concrete examples are not lacking
of the suspicion and Ignorance which
prevails in many districts of this
country where roads are virtually
impassable, for in those communities
contemporaneous conveniences of
our modern society are likewise slow
to be introduced. Very few telephones
or railroads are found In remote
parts of certain states of our Union,
largely because the public highways,
in case any have been laid out, are
Pnnr roads anywhere serve as a
barrier to the quickest an dmost ef
ficient promotion of education, en
lightenment, understanding and good
will. Good roads are the comple
ments of progress, thrift, Unowledge
and community development in gen
eral. Large appropriations should be
made and effective work done in that
direction. The welfare of society,
communal, state and national, would
be furthered thereby.

"Sabotage" Is a good word. It
means the carrying on of class strug
gle while at work. The Nation is at
work to win the war. Persons guilty
of sabotage are guilty of disturbing
the process of the Government and
of industry necessary for winning
the war. Let us combine to eliminate
sabotage from this country. It may
show itself In strikes, mob violence,
or even individually by disloyal re
marks. The doctrine of sabotage is
vicious. Let us overcome this by co
operation. Pull together don't in
terrupt. Another thing we have discovered
is that the longer an explanation is
the less it explains.

THE NEW BOOKS
AMERICA, THE LAND OF LANDS
We blame, we criticise and heap
suspicion upon our America, its Gov
ernment, its heads and upon all the
social, religious and indutsrial insti
tutions; we are shocked, provoked,
offended by our fellow countrymen,
but, after all, we are sure that we are
living in the best of all lands.
"Yet, if on daily scandals fed.
We seem at times to doubt thy
We know thee still, when all is said,
Tlie best and dearest spot on earth."
Thus Whittier addressed "the land
of lands" America. There is not a
man, woman or child of the United
States who does not rise with en
thusiasm and whose blood does not
run fast at the sound of our national
air. There is not a laborer living in
the meanest hovel whose prayers,
whose hopes and v whose service does
not live for the accused, criticised,
bedraggled and crucified America.
"O Land of Lands. To thee we give
Our prayers, our hopes, our service
For this thy sons shall nobly live.
And at thy need shall die for
A few years ago the opinion was
expressed by a prominent judge that
the local option law, requiring a
minimum fine of $300, defeated itself.
His argument was that the authori
ties, in the fact of the expense of jail
ing a man for 300 days, would hesitate
to prosecute violators of the law. The
minimum fine is not too big.
To the housekeeper whose mind is
almost worn out from trying to think
of fourteen wheatless meals for every
week, the books which are now ap
pearing with recipes for corn dishes
Mrs. Mary L. Wade has written a
book in which she does not stop with
com breads, but gives the rules for
making any number of corn dishes,
from soups to desserts. There are
Jf0 recipes in all. All have been
gathered by Mrs. Wade from trust
worthy sources, according to her own
fore-statement, and some of the
recipes are "new" and "different"
enough to make the family forget that
they are eating corn instead of wheat.
For corn breads and pones, there
are recipes from many states. Muf
fins, griddle cakes and drop cakes
come in for a section, too, and a short
space is given to mushes and gruels,
which it seems may be made in more
appetizing manner than formerly.
Meat and fish dishes, made with
corn meal, occupy a section, and the
various ways in which sweet corn
may be used are also listed. Five
soups, in which corn is combined with
other vegetables, are given, and then
a number of desserts, including pud
dings, jellies and pies, are described.
The final section is devoted to can
dies, and the cook is surprised to
learn that many of the best candles
contain corn in some form or other.
It is interesting to know that the
"Book of Corn Cookery" is dedicated
to Mrs. Mary T. Lincoln, author of
the "Boston Cook Book." The first
chapter is devoted to a discussion of
the origin, nutritive value and di
gestibility of corn.

This Teacher Objects o War.
One hundred and twenty-four Cal
laway County teachers who attended
the annual meeting of their county
association in Fulton last week sign
ed he membership roll of the Teach

who said he had conscientious ob
jections to war, did not sign the roll.
Superintendent n. G. Hale who talked
with him on the subject, told him he
ought to resign his job as a teacher.

Dean E. J. .uX'atistlaml Believes Too
Free Circulation of Air Wasteful.
Investigations have shown that
with coal costing approximately ?5 a
ton. the expense of heating an S-room
house in the climate of the Missis
sippi Valley approximates $80 a year,
according to E. J. McCaustland of the
University of Missouri. Thjs is a suf
ficiently large sum to make it worth
while, to consider means of getting
the maximum heat efficiency from
Fuel can be saved by preventing too
free air circulation in the house, says
Dean McCaustland, but this should
not be carried to the point of inter
fering with proper ventilation. Heat
losses from rooms increase directly
with the extent of window surface.
If ordinary shades are drawn over
the windows, they will prevent, to
some extent, the losses of heat due
Stoves are notoriously inefficient
for heating purposes and with them,
as with the open fire, much heat is
lost up the chimneys. Proper manip
ulation of check drafts will help to
reduce such losses.
